Ayush Jain

The Fulbright Aberystwyth University Summer Institute on Identity and Nationhood 

Ayush, originally from Mount Prospect, IL, has moved 10 times in his lifetime. He is currently a rising junior at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, pursuing a major in Neuroscience alongside obtaining his Master's in Public Health with a concentration in Epidemiology. With a focus on public health, Ayush is keenly interested in understanding the healthcare system of the UK and the role of government within it.

Eager to delve into the background and identity of Wales, Ayush sees this as an opportunity for personal reflection given his diverse background. He hopes to gain insights into the economic and social dynamics of Wales through hands-on experiences, addressing local community issues in the process.

In collaborative discussions with peers who share his passion, Ayush aims to broaden his perspective and develop as an active leader in society. He aspires to use his knowledge and experiences to advocate for societal needs and inspire others to take meaningful action. This program presents a means for Ayush to contribute positively to society while furthering his understanding of public health and social dynamics.
